Mumbai City FC host newcomers SC East Bengal tonight for the first time ever at the GMC Bambolin Stadium.
SC East Bengal are currently at the bottom of the points table with a match in hand, after the defeat against their arch rivals ATK Mohun Bagan. Although East Bengal played really well in the Kolkata Derby but they couldn’t manage to resist the attacking threat posed by their opponents.
SC East Bengal able to resist the attack of ATK Mohun Bagan in the first half very well but failed to do the same in the second phase of the game considering two goals in the starting and the dying moments of the the second half. Also SC East Bengal impressed everyone with their positional play and their passing.
They completed a lot more passes against ATK Mohun Bagan and their passing accuracy was also on point. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that SC East Bengal would gave in everything they had in that game but couldn’t go pass Arindam and capitalise and score past him.
It will be an interesting fixture tonight as City Football Group team Mumbai City FC will play The Red and Golds and the fans would be excited for such a high voltage game.
